CNN: Ellen Carmichael on GOP minority outreach

President of The Lafayette Company and GOP strategist Ellen Carmichael said Republicans’ efforts to reach out to minority voters and impoverished Americans can at times be frustrating but that she sees reasons for optimism in her party’s rising stars who “really get it.”

“I think we’re getting it more than we did in the past,” Carmichael told CNN’s “Party People” podcast hosts Kevin Madden in a recent conversation, and cited Rep. Todd Young and Sen. Marco Rubio as two elected officials who successfully reached out to marginalized groups and won in November’s elections.
